Not necessarily. It's quicker to put together a single-disc DVD movie than it is a multi-disc season boxed DVD set. ;)

I hope they don't do that. I've already bought seasons 1 and 2, and I hate having to double dip on seasons I've already bought when something even better comes along.

I didn't buy the first 2 seasons, I got a less legal means of getting them, but I do plan on picking all of them up after Prime is done.

That would be cool, I've been holding out on buying them thinking they'll do such a thing.

And for those that already bought them separately, I'm sure S3 will still be available separately as well.

Here is the cover art and story synopsis it is very spoiler heavy though.

tvshowsondvd.com

A resurrected UNICRON has taken over the now-lifeless body of MEGATRON to seek vengeance on the AUTOBOTS and ultimately, the destruction of Cybertron. This formidable enemy forces an unlikely alliance between the AUTOBOTS, DECEPTICONS, PREDAKING and two new Predacons, who come together in an epic battle to help protect their newly restored planet!

Yesterday we reported that the upcoming Transformers Prime: Predacons Rising DVD and Blu-ray were listed for pre-order and set to release in October, but the no cover art or synopsis were available. Today thanks to TV Shows on DVD we have both! Be forewarned the synopsis contains spoilers regarding the end of the Transformers Prime saga, the synopsis can be found be scrolling past the cover art.

The DVD is set to release on October 8th, but the Blu-ray will be available a week earlier on October 1st.

Well, that explains why two toys that are called "Unicron Megatron" are coming down the pipe. Unicron returns? But his spark was (supposedly) extinguished at the end of the first season. I wonder how they'll have him return. :-?

But "lifeless"? Interesting, I suppose. Megatron will be killed sometime between now and then, most likely in "Deadlock".

Two new Predacons? Also interesting. I'm anxious to hear how they will come about.

Overall, this movie seems like it'll be a thriller! Can't wait to see it. :D

Sounds completely different than I thought it would, yet amazing!!

My guess: Airachnid and the Insecticons will be controlled or forced to work as Unicron's army since they are still infected with the Dark-En/Synth-En formula. That would be awesome.

No, he was put to sleep not killed.

thing with Megatron comes as a bit of a shock. However, I don't think he's dead, otherwise it would have been worded differently.

One would think that with Unicron's spark going "POOF!", he'd be "dead", or off to another continuity, since he is a multiuniversal singularity.

Yeah, I thought that was a little shocking as well. It did say "lifeless", so either he's dead, or his spark is outside of his body.

I'm excited for this.

Anyone else think the two new Predacons are Skylynx and Darksteel from the Predacons Rising subline?. It gives me even more reason to buy those gorgeous repaints. :KREMZEEK:

I thought they said something about bringing Unicron back; this recon firms it. Can't say I'm enthusiastic about it anyway.

I wonder if any Autobots die here or in Episode 65. :twisted:

They stated that the Matrix is the only thing that can put him back to sleep and that they can't kill him without destroying the planet. Earth is still very much in tact so he's alive.

Yea, he ether has an outer-body experience, is dead or more likely "on stand-by" with forcing himself back into control over his own body during or after the climax, ether as a deus-ex machina to defeat Unicron or as the classic "en of slasher film uprising" thing.
Ether way, this sounds awesome.

I mean, honestly, would it really kill them to make a movie that's called "Predacons Rising" be about, you know, predacons who are rising?! Image

As soon as I saw that Unicron Megatron repaint I figured that's what would happen. Kinda like Galvatron in Beast Wars Neo. With Megatron gone though, it gives a good explanation as to how a new Beast Wars could start. But I'm sure that won't happen. :-(

With so much suspense building up, I really can't wait for the movie! :grin:

I'm probably not going to get the DVD, but I'm interested to know more about these bonus features.

alrighty so its confirmed this is the ending of the series....so back to a point i made on another story about this release.......... why are they announcing the release of the end of the show before even announcing the 3rd season's release?

is this actually gonna come out before the season does?

That would be most logical because I don't see them having it ready before October

It's quicker and easier to release a single disc DVD containing one feature presentation than it is to release a multi-disc DVD set containing a whole season of 13 episodes.

Yeah, cuz Predaking totally doesn't count. :roll:

The hunting aspect was involved with the Predacon bones.

But, we'll get more Preds in the movie:
